“Why is this allowed?” – Many Newcastle fans baffled at international striker scoring against their reserves

“Isn’t he about 35” – A lot of Newcastle United fans are confused with the Toon’s U23’s latest result.

The young Magpies were beaten 2-1 by West Bromwich Albion who played Hal Robson-Kanu, Chris Brunt and Ali Al-Habsi.

Robson-Kanu scored a double for the Baggies, and this has left many Newcastle fans wondering why a 30-year-old striker was playing against their reserves.

What was even more sickening for Neil Redfearn’s side was that the Welsh striker scored a last-minute winner.

Before this Tom Allan had scored his fourth goal of the season from the penalty spot.

The Toon were good, but ultimately that first-team quality condemned them to defeat.

A lot of Newcastle supporters were questioning the age of Robson-Kanu while others were confused why players such as Brunt and the former Reading man were allowed to play against Newcastle’s kids.
